Investing For The Hereafter, Ibn Al-Qayyim


Get yourself out of this limited world of diseases to the wide world of the Hereafter, which what the eyes have never seen. Nothing is impossible there, and love is not lost.

O you who sold yourself for the sake of something which will cause you suffering and pain, and which will also lose its beauty, you sold the most precious item for the cheapest price, as if you neither knew the value of the goods nor the meanness of the price.

Wait until you come to the Day of mutual loss and gain and you will discover the injustice of this contract. ”There is no God but Allaah” is something that Allaah is buying. Its prices is Paradise, and the Messenger is its agent, and you will be pleased to part with a small part of this worldly life to obtain it. The part you lose is a small part of something that as a whole is not worth a mosquito’s wing.

  1. SubhanALLAH

  2. Can you please clarify whether any authentic hadith or other texts refer that lending money is more rewarding in Islam than giving sadaqah?

    • Aboo Umaamah Albaahiliy reported that the Prophet (saw) said:

      “A man entered Paradise and saw at its gate the following statement, ‘The sadaqah (charity) will receive 10 times its like (in rewards), while the loan will recieve 18 times its like.’ ”

      [Silsilah Saheehah 3407]
